travel in to the week. julie martin at new york's laguardia airport. >> reporter: well, a very busy day here at the new york airports but not as busy in terms of cancelations fortunately as yesterday. in fact, system wide yesterday we saw about 1,600 flights canceled across the u.s., hundreds of them were here at the new york airports but as of today so far just about 50 or so in and out of laguardia. about the same for jfk and newark. one of the big reasons, the weather is improving. we're still seeing some low ceilings here but the rain has all but moved out of new york city and those winds which have been the big problem have died down in to the teens so that's really no issue for the pilots here. what is still an issue, though, is the fact that so many people are traveling for the holidays, trying to get home from the holidays or get to the next holiday destination for the new year and unfortunately we have another storm system that's going to be working its way in to the northeast in the next couple of days, just in time for the new yore's holiday so, in fact, we could see more str
and is reported favorably by the senate judiciary committee last july. i hope senators will support it. i'm leave pleased that senatorse joined me as cosponsors of this amendment. i call on all senators who talk about accountability and oversight to join with us to adopt this better approach to ensuring our security and our privacy. in june, after the senate intelligence committee originated the senate bill to reauthorize and extend fisa, senator grassley and i asked for a sequential referral, one that would allow the judiciary committee to consider and improve this important legislation, which under the rules we could. the bill that was approved by the intelligence committee provided for a general and really unfettered extension of the expired provisions until june 2017. i hope that we could approve that and we did. i worked with the distinguished chair of the senate intelligence committee to craft a compromise to assure the extension until 2015 you go also add some -- but also add some accountability in the overite oversight provision. i appreciated the senator from california's help and strong

the fiscal cliff. the dow lost 158 points, it is currently a five day losing streak in its longest since july. the nasdaq reported 25 points. >> banks rack up a record to $10.7 billion in fines in 2012. that includes what the banks paid to u.s. and state of 40's-but it does not include the billions more paid to european regulators. most of the fines were related to improper mortgage practices. >> making interstate phone calls could soon get cheaper. for prison inmates. prison call systems are different than normal pay phones. a typical 50 minute conversation current cost an average of $16. that is largely due to fees that call providers are allowed to charge prisoners in some states. here in new york, where fees are banned, rates can go as low as 5¢ a minute. but in places like colorado, inmates did charge almost 90¢ a minute. the sec is planning to open the public comment about reducing rates nationwide. >> the u.s. population is said to hit 350 million by the new year's day. it has an increase of less than 1 percent since april 2010, which was the last time the population snapshot was tak

that vote back on july 25th, the democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here and, as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american peop
for a very different reason. accusing her parents david and julie ireland of stalking her and winning an unusual protection order against them, making them stay 500 feet away until at least next september. no one answered at the ireland's home in leewood today, but neighbors here describe a night-knit family, proud parents who worked hard to give their only child anything she wanted but veered toward overprotective. not letting her play at neighboring homes. neighbors also told us that the irelands went around the neighborhood asking friends and folks for letters of support saying they were good parents to take to court against their daughter. but the parents admitted to a cincinnati judge that they installed monitoring software on aubrey's computer and cell phone, making her feel like, quote, a dog with a collar on. aubrey says they would often drive to her campus unannounced to check on her, accusing her of promiscuity, drug use, and having mental problems. the parents say she's lying and that, quote, she's an only child that was cater to all her life by loving parents. we're not bo

. the senate bill that was passed in july was sort of a clean bill. it was flawed in the sense that it didn't deal with the alternative minimum tax and some other things, but it extended the rates for everything under $250,000. that's the bill that the president wants to see an up or down vote in the house. again, even if the house were to vote on that bill, it would still have to go bab to the senate because the house has to act first. so it's just a mess. >> okay. thanks, joy. thanks, leigh. thanks for sticking around. stay tuned at 5:45 or the president's statement. up next, the nra's response to gun violence? what else, more guns. >>> and the renewed battle over gun violence is with chris matthews. in 15 minutes we expect to hear from the president so stay tuned to msnbc, the place for politics. stay tuned at 5:45 or the politics. campbell's has 24 new soups that will make it drop over, and over again. ♪ from jammin' jerk chicken, to creamy gouda bisque. see what's new from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. c'mon, michael! get in the game!

a solution to the fiscal cliff but he's in error. we all know that in july of this year we passed in the senate the relief that it would give to middle class americans. that passed the senate. now, we know that the republicans have buried themselves in procedural road blocks to everything we try to do around here, and now they're saying, well, we can't do the $250,000 because it wasn't blue slipped, because it will be blue slipped. mr. president, how do the american people react to that? there was a bill introduced by the ranking member of the ways and means committee in the house, sandy levin, that called for this legislation. the speaker was going to bring it up to kill it, but he couldn't kill it, and then we moved to plan bsm"b," the debac of all debacles. it's the other of all debacles. that was brought up in an effort to send us something. he couldn't even pass it among the republicans it was so absurd. he, meaning the speaker. so it's very clear now, mr. president, that the speaker's number one goal is to get elected speaker on january 3rd. the house is not even here. he's

or six months, since july 25, speaker boehner could have brought the senate poifd middle-class tax cut legislation to a vote in the house and it would pass. but he's made the decision he's not going to let a vote on that because if he led he let it be voted upon, it would pass. i've said here, mr. president, it's not too late for the speaker to take up the senate-passed bill, but that time is even wiping down. today is thursday. he's going to give 48 hours' notice to the house before they come back so 48 hours from today is saturday. with just that one vote, middle-class families would have the security their taxes wouldn't go up by at least $2,200 on new year's day. that's the average. some would go up more, some less, of course. speaker boehner should call members of the house back to washington today. he shouldn't have let them go, in fact. they're not here. they are not here. john boehner seems to care more about keeping his speakership than keeping the nation on a firm financial footing. it's obvious what's going on. he's waiting until january 3 to get reelected to speaker because
